We acknowledge that some of the bigger airlines need significantly more complex systems with greater challenges than today’s Turnit Ride is capable of handling, but smaller domestic airlines could be adapted to our platform. This is why it is reasonable to use the same principles for domestic airlines that Turnit Ride uses in other industries.
- In the airline industry, you have to have complete control over your inventory so that the weight and seat distribution is in order. Seats cannot be piled into one small area, for example the front of the airplane. For some airplanes, it is important that the seats are scattered across the plane, especially for small aircrafts. Additionally, the seat layout configuration is different from bus or rail industry although in domestic airlines wide-body aircraft are rarely used. Turnit Ride’s inventory management module gives operators full control on how to define and describe their seat inventory.
- The logistic chain in the airline industry is significantly less complicated. There are no stops in the middle of the route – it means that there is only one origin and one destination per trip. This results in cheaper implementation and less time-consuming integration with our logistics management module. Yet multi-leg searches are more often performed, which is why our multi-leg algorithm is very useful.
- Unlike the bus or rail industry, the airline industry seat allocation is done when the passenger checks in. Our inventory management system can be configured to allow seat allocation during the check-in phase.
- Last but not least, there are a huge number of rules, regulations, and standards that have to be followed in the airline industry including check-in procedures, PNR, IATA etc. Our implementation procedure is capable of following all the industry regulations.
